Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition B format (130 x 198 mm) paperback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing of this edition. Unread but the book has been described as very good only due to signs of shelf storage (discolouration to one third of the bottom and leading edges of pages, not affecting text).

SYNOPSIS:  “In the flickering glow of a dying torch, three friends recite incantations from the yellowing pages of a rare book of sorcery. Little do they realise that they are about to raise the dead. The spirits they conjure are from a legendary island where the living and the dead once co-existed peacefully. All that ended though when a visiting missionary trapped the image of the spirits with a special camera nearly 80 years ago. Now imprisoned in the pages of a few dozen books, the ghosts need the children but should the children trust the ghosts?” Comes complete with the publisher’s publicity handout.
